Kelly Bensimon has teamed up with designer Jen Mascali to observe the 10th anniversary of 9/11... with a tote bag. In her touching letter that accompanies the $240 product, Bensimon explains that she's "totally crazy for handbags."
After all, just because it's 9/11, that doesn't mean you don't need a bag to carry your things around in, so it might as well be an appropriately themed one. It can even hold your anxiety medication, or emergency nips of vodka, or your iPod with the MP3 of Jeff Buckley's cover of "Hallelujah" that you should play on a continuous loop to get you in the right frame of mind.
But let's talk about what's really important: appearances! This "Remember" bag is shiny red leather, and for an extra classy touch, it has an adornment that's in the shape of a flame. The fireball features the words: "Each life is a miracle that changes the world and leaves it a better place than it was before."
It's sad that no one will buy this bag, because 100% of all sales will be donated to the National September 11th Memorial and Museum in New York City.
